The Military Historical Museum of Artillery, Engineers and Signal Corps, also known simply as the Artillery Museum, is a state-owned military museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The official date of its foundation is August 29, 1703, when by Peter the Great’s decree a special Zeughaus (Ger. — Military storehouse for armaments, uniforms, equipment, etc.) was built on the territory of the St. Petersburg (Peter­-and-­Paul) fortress for the purpose of storing and preserving old guns and cannons. Originally this had been a small wooden structure that was later rebuilt with brick. Both Russian and captured guns and cannons that were considered to have historical value were sent to this arsenal “for remembrance and future glory.”
The Military­-Historical Museum of Artillery, Engineer and Signal Corps became one of the most significant military­-historical museums in the world for its more than 300‑year history, a subject of national pride for Russia. It is a real temple of Russian military history, a “division of eternity” within the Russian Armed Forces, as it is rightfully called. Its doors are always open to visitors who can expect to find an exciting meeting with the military history of Russia and of other countries of the world.
